Fences and gates are a great way to add both a unique touch to the aesthetical value of your property, and it can serve many practical functions as way. The following is a quick overview of the options available and things to keep in mind when shopping for a garden gate.

A garden gate or side gate is often intended to protect certain areas, to keep kids or pets out of trouble, for keeping away possible intruders, or simply for privacy.

However, garden gates also give the first impression to people visiting your home and is thus an important element for the home improvement buff to consider. With a little bit of creativity a garden gate can make even a rather ordinary fence stand out from the crowd.

Today you can choose from a wide variety of professionally designed gates or, if you are the do-it-yourself type, you could simply build a unique gate for yourself. The gate can be as basic or as advanced as you wish - an automatic gate at the front of your driveway or a classic little wooden gate.

The purpose will dictate what kind of gate you will be used, and with lower prices for devices like automatic gate openers more and more people are now installing gates on the front of their driveway. These are usually opened by remote control or automatically as your car pulls in to the driveway. Naturally they can also be locked, preventing unwanted visitors from driving all the way up to your porch.

Unless you build an entrenched wall you will naturally not be able to make break in's impossible, but it might still be that little extra that makes potential thieves leave your house in peace.

From the aesthetical point of view, there are many small and not so small options to consider. The style of the gate itself should obviously fit the scenario and you might opt for anything from a regal looking, specially designed wrought iron gate to a traditionally simplistic wooden gate.

Regardless of the type of gate you have, or it's use, gate latches is yet another way to give it a certain type if stylistic flavour. There is a huge selection available, often at a relatively low cost. Even a rather ordinary gate may be enhanced and made unique by installing a specially selected gate latch.

A garden gate might be a small detail in itself. But it can definitely be highly practical in operation as well as a decorative addition to the outside of your property.
